Nottingham Forest face QPR tonight looking to further flex their promotion credentials and claim a sizeable three points. Steve Cooper’s men defeated Reading 4-0 at the weekend to continue on the march.

The Reds have been in fine form of late. On Sunday the club will take on Liverpool in the FA Cup but the bread and butter of the league takes centre stage tonight.

Forest are in a nice position in the Championship but with Middlesbrough claiming a big win last night, Cooper’s men could really do with all three tonight.

Ahead of this evening, we looked at how Forest might line up.

The Forest rearguard

Ethan Horvath kept a third clean sheet for the Reds on Saturday and he should start once again.

There will be a forced change at centre-back after Steve Cook hobbled off on Saturday. Tobias Figueiredo looks like being the next man up.

Joe Worrall and Scott McKenna will both retain their places.

In the Forest engine room and wing back

Forest will have to make another change at wing-back, with Max Lowe picking up a groin problem. His absence will likely see Jack Colback return to left-back.

Djed Spence will start on the right, whilst Ryan Yates and James Garner look likely to play in midfield.

Cafu was introduced from the bench on Saturday and he’s pushing hard for a first start since August.

Leading the Forest line

Philip Zinckernagel looks to have shaken off his illness and he should start.

Brennan Johnson picks himself these days and he’s very much the Forest matchwinner.

In Keinan Davis and Sam Surridge, Cooper has two strikers who want to play. Davis scored twice on Saturday though and should get the nod.

Here is how tonight’s team could look:
